So Comcast would have to pass along the cost of getting the ACC network, huh? My bill just went up $10/month or $120/yr due to "programming costs" and NO new channels added. Tomorrow I plan to actively seek an alternative to Comcast. There are many issues with their service in our area and not having the ACC network is the last straw for me.
Talked to a comcast rep. and found out that you can get ACCN afterall. Go to xfinity page and go to aps. Click on that and go Videos and look up XUMO. go to channel 733 and walla ACC Network. Can't wait to see my Noles on ACCN when they play again.
I tried it but all I can get is 739 ACC DN (ACC Digital Network) which I don't believe is the same thing as the regular ACC network where they show the FSU basketball.. I live in Tallahassee and on XUMO channel 733 is USA Sports Wire. I sure would like to find out how I can get the regular ACC network to watch the FSU BB games. Any help would be appreciated.
Seriously, Xfinity does not carry the ACC Netowork?! ACC Netrok was launch in August 2019, it's February 2020, how long does it take to come to an agreement? Unreal!
Maybe it's time to cut the cord if they do not provide services that other providers do!
Here's a list of providers that do!
AT&T Live Now
A better question is why there isn't an agreement between the two. Is it Comcast's lack of desire to add the channel, or is ESPN's asking price so exhorbitant that Comcast feels it needs to take a stand even though every other provider decided it was reasonable enough?
Either way, it's a bad optic.
Currently my cable channel lineup includes the SEC network although there are no SEC schools in PA. We DO have a school in the ACC (Pitt) and we have another in a bordering state (Maryland). Also Notre Dame, which has a big national following plays in the ACC for many of their teams. When does Comcast plan to add the ACC network to our channel lineup? I've already ask this question numerous times and have yet to receive a response. Please add this channel!!!
All of the Comcast competitors in my area are carrying the ACC network. I am very pleased with the Comcast/xFinity services and have been a customer for 40 years, going back to Adelphia. However, I am very displeased that they choose not to carry the ACC network. All of my neighbors, friends and family have switched to other carriers and are able to watch the Virginia Tech football games while I am relegated to listening on the radio.
This season has been disrupted more than enough by the Covid virus.
When can I expect to see the ACCN channel(s) added to my lineup?
When pigs fly, at the moment.
Just a friendly reminder that one of ND's most important games of the year will be at UNC on the day after Turkey Day. Winner likely goes to the ACC title game in Charlotte to likely get beaten up on by Clemson. And Comcast subscribers in South Bend, Chicago, and anywhere else with a large ND fanbase will have to resort to alternative means to be able to see it without venturing out to an establishment, since it will be exclusively on ACC Network.
So a reminder--the most important game of the year for the Irish, and you can't see it, because Comcast and Disney can't play nice.
It is getting more and more frustrating that this company cannot seem to get the negotiations completed to get the ACC network. When my current agreement expires, if the ACC network is not available, I will change TV providers.
Several top 10 football teams are in the ACC and being televised on the ACCN channel. There is no excuse for Comcast not to come to an agreement so that fans can watch these games. ACC is as important as SEC and Big 10. Get with it. Don't want to have to switch to DISH!!
